Default can't see new hard drive

The bios sees it and device manager sees it, but windows explorer does not see it...

story, I added a 1TB for storage, on top of the 320GB that windows in installed on.

What am I missing?

By chance did windows define it with the same drive letter as another drive? Go into disk management and see if its seen there. If you right click on my computer and select manage you will see disk management click there and see if you see the harddrive there. If its there right click and see if you can change the letter defined by windows to another one and see if it then pops up. If not let us know and we can go from there.
